Nigel's WebSpace - English Football Cards - Topps Chewing Gum (Scottish)
1975/76
Footballer (Blue backs)

An interesting first set from Topps, quite small at only 88 cards, and with a strange mix of teams (17 of the 18 teams from the 1974/75 Scottish Premier League, missing Airdrie) and players from teams (9 players from Clyde, but only 4 from Celtic). The cards are grey in colour, rather than white, which leads to these sometimes being called 'blue/grey backs'.

Footballer (Red backs)

A larger set than 1975/76, increasing from 88 to 132, though the number of teams decreases from 17 to 12. The team included are now the 10 teams from the Scottish Premier League from 1975/76 plus the two teams promoted from the First Division - Partick and Kilmarnock.

1977/78
Footballer (Yellow backs)

Topps stuck to the 132 card set, but got a bit lazy by including a number of Shoot Scottish All Stars. The number of teams is strange, thirteen, being the 10 teams in the Premier Division in 1976/77, plus promoted St. Mirren and Clydebank, plus third placed Dundee.

1978/79
Footballer (Green backs)

Relegated clubs Ayr United and Clydebank feature reduced numbers, promoted Hearts managed two players while fellow promotees Morton managed none. Dundee, again failing to achieve promotion, continued to feature as the only club not in or on their way into the top flight.
